Innovative Design Applications Using Advanced Fire Rated Glazing Technology

Tim Nass shares his expertise in glazing history and how it fits into the architectural process during the 2020 GlassCon Global VE.

Architects have always pushed the limits of what building products can do, and fire rated glazing is no exception. This program shows how fire rated glazing has evolved from small doorlites and openings using wired glass and ceramics to floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, multi-tasking fire resistive glazing systems. Case studies showing these innovative design applications in real-word settings will be used to show participants how architects continue to push the boundaries of what fire rated glass can do.
